22 LENGTH GRADE 2 VICTORY & ANOTHER DOUBLE!

16-02-2018

THIS WEEK Another day we've all been dreaming of arrived on Saturday when we scored another epic landmark victory for the yard winning The Grade 2 Kingmaker Novices' Chase at Warwick with the regal Saint Calvados.  And to cap off this glorious day The Dubai Way dug his way to victory carrying an enormous weight to win his 4th race in 4 starts for us.  And with Cheltenham now in our sights we're hoping to keep the dreams alive... IMG_8851 IMG_8894 REPORTS Saint Calvados took another big step towards the Arkle with a 22 length victory of the Grade 2 Kingmaker Novices Chase at Warwick on Saturday.  He jumped off in front under Aidan Coleman and didn’t see another horse.  He travelled powerfully, his jumping was very slick and when Aidan asked him to lengthen down the back straight nothing could go with him.  He cruised into the straight and lengthened up in the run in to win by an eased 22 lengths.  He has progressed with every run and now goes to the Arkle with a live chance. Warwick1 The Dubai Way made it 4 from 4 for connections with a gutsy display to secure a second double for the yard.  He sat in 2nd for most of the contest and other than a mistake at the first hurdle he jumped very well.  They went quite steady throughout and when the pace lifted he was caught flat footed, but to his credit he picked up well to turn in with every chance.  He produced two good jumps in the straight and went away to win by just under a length.  He hasn’t put a foot wrong since joining us and he will now be aimed at the EBF final on Imperial Cup day at Sandown. We believe there’s more to come from him. IMG_2957 Tierra Verde produced an improved performance to finish 3rd at Plumpton on Monday.  She was ridden more patiently this time and it seemed to do the trick.  Her jumping was much slicker and she travelled through the race more smoothly too.  A mistake at 3 out cost her finishing closer to the front pair, but it was still a very solid run.  This was an improved performance and she can go on from here. Perfect Myth finished 3rd on her step up to 2 miles at Musselburgh on Wednesday.  She was ridden patiently and the steady pace did make her a bit keen in the early stages.  The pace quickened out of the back straight and she was going as well as anything turning in.  She picked up well in the straight to have every chance but couldn't sustain her challenge, eventually finishing 3rd.  This was a solid performance and she may have run into a very smart horse. ENTRIES Taras Day is set to have her 2nd hurdles start at Market Rasen on Sunday.  She ran a good race at Ludlow first time out before getting tired.  She raced freely the last day and we are dropping back in trip to teach her to settle.  Hopefully she can take another step forward. IMG_8967 Tangoed holds another entry at Huntingdon on Thursday, but she will only run if the ground is suitable.  She is in good form and should be competitive wherever she runs. Until next week...
